Jane Austen Gets a Makeover at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica
By Jorge Casuso
November 29, 2017 -- November 28, 2017 -- Jane Austen wrote only six books but two centuries later her popularity continues to fuel sequels that take off where the British novelist left off.
They have taken the form of diaries penned by her characters and even a zombie retelling of her most famous novel, "Pride and Prejudice," that became a bestselling book and movie.
The Los Angeles Times called the show “a stunning feat of performance and literary wizardry.”
Impro Theatre's performances are unique, with characters and story structure changing for each performance, event organizers said.
"Each performance offers an exploration into the process of spontaneous creation while encouraging a profound level of engagement between performers and audience, who are all united in discovering what happens in the moment on that particular night."
Last year, Impro Theatre's "Jane Austen UnScripted" at the Broad received two Ovation Award nominations for “Best Presented Production.”
The company was also nominated for “Best Featured Actress in a Musical” for Michele Spears’ performance in "Sondheim UnScripted."
In other shows during its residency, Impro Theatre will present unscripted version of Chekhov (February 23 to 25), the Twilight Zone (March 16 to 18), Shakespeare (April 20 to 22), Dorothy Parker (May 18 to 20) and Tennessee Williams (June 15 - 17).
